Stayed, ate and drank. A lovely experience hosted by Sean and the team. We will be back soon for more Italian grub (what a great Pizza oven) and varied beers and fine wines. We know it has recently opened under new ownership. What a great start. Good luck.

We last ate here in July for my Mother's Birthday. Fantastic food with a great ambience. There was a great menu with plenty of original dishes available and the desserts were great. Our friends were staying here and very much enjoyed the breakfasts. The establishment ceased trading in September which is such a shame as we were very much lookin... More

We had a celebration meal with our family on the occasion of our Golden Wedding Anniversary. We chose this restaurant because it is opposite the Church where we were married on the 28th September 1963. The service, dining room and food were all excellent and we couldnt have enjoyed it more! Great place to have a celebration. Thank you for... More

We stayed at the Oswald on the 27-28 September. It is difficult to critique because we could not find any fault what's so ever. The room was spacious, spotlessly clean and very tastefully decorated with a large queen sized bed. Although we didn't utilise the restaurant the menu looked impressively tempting. The bar had a good range of beers wines... More

We provided a disco for a Wedding Evening reception there, the staff were excellent very friendly and made us feel very welcome nothing was too much trouble. The buffet was exceptional. This is a great place to have a party....All in all a fantastic place to go.

We stayed two nights in room 4. The restaurant food was ok to great. A mixture of excellent cooking (the lamb rump with broad beans and peas was superb on the first night) and standard fare (huge portion of stodgy sticky toffee pudding). Breakfast ok but not fabulous (poached egg on first morning was cooked right through, for example). Staff... More

My husband and I decided to have a short break in Thirsk again and therefore booked into Oswalds once more, having stayed here in April and found it very good with wonderful food. However this time we were disappointed both with the room and the food. The menu is quite limited and had not changed much since April, considering that... More

I've just come back from a two stay at Oswalds, and had a lovely time. The staff were really friendly and the food was great. Luckily the sun was shining too! Thirsk is a pretty town and the National Park Centre at the Moors is worth a trip. Great stay!

Oswalds is approx a ten minute walk into the centre of Thirsk. It is along a quiet wide street in Sowerby. Thirsk is a small, market town with most local amenities. It is well located to the A1(m) and also for access to the Yorkshire dales and moors. The rooms are in the rear of the development which is accessed... More
